Weekend Wrap-up!

We had a spectacular weekend! Yesterday, we went to Loveless Cafe for breakfast. Everyone had told us that they had the best biscuits in town so we decided to test out the theory. Apparently, we were not the only ones with that idea since we waited an hour to eat the biscuits. They were some good biscuits! My favorite biscuits were Poogan's Porch in Charleston until yesterday. Now, Loveless won that honor! Evie did great waiting and waiting for breakfast. We walked around to the shops, met some tourists, spotted lots of Gamecock fans in for the Vandy game and even listened to some music. Evie kissed every pumpkin that she saw since she really likes pumpkins. The man playing his guitar played the Itsy Bitsy spider for Evie which we appreciated so much because it gave us a break from chasing her all over the place. Breakfast was so good! I had country ham, home fries and shared some pancakes with Evie. Our little dipper had a great time dipping every last morsel of her pancake into the syrup. It was a fun time! She had syrup from head to toe but was so happy with her pancakes.

  We came home and played outside before watching a few home videos. Evie loves to see herself on the "show." She napped for a long time and so did Mommy. After nap, we headed to the zoo but it was closed for a ghoul event. We took a walk to the park and then crashed on the couch.

  Evie slept late this morning and then we tried out a church again. Not the church for us because Evie was the only one in the nursery. One day, we will find one that works for our family.  We will keep looking. My neighbor told me it took her three years to find a church once they moved here. That's a long time!

    We stopped by Harris Teeter on the way home. Evie knew it was the cookie place as soon as we were in the parking lot. She convinced her Daddy to let her drive the car cart even though we were only picking up a few things.

  Evie napped and Carl grilled us a pork tenderloin for lunch. It was good but a little too spicy for us. We were a little over zealous with the sauce.

  Carl stayed home to watch football and I went to see a movie. It was Life as you Know it and it was excellent.

   Evie was so excited to see me when I got back and Carl gave us both a wagon ride around the yard. Evie loved having me in the wagon with her. Not sure Carl liked it quite as much! Evie is so much fun. We are having a blast with her and are amazed at how quickly she is changing. She is talking so much and learns words at an alarming rate. Today, she learned: okay, papple (pineapple), bike and Tennessee. She is saying Mommy over and over when she needs my attention so I can see where this can get old but it's still sweet for the moment.

  Our new neighbors came over and I just loved meeting them. Evie had a blast with their boys. She showed them the ropes of living in the neighborhood and introduced them to her triplet friends. It was pretty cute. We hope to get to know the neighbors better soon!


  1. What a fun weekend! I am dying to see that movie too, but we don't have many cinema experiences around here anymore. We're not even sure of the last movie we saw in a theater! Glad you got a well-deserved break.
